Ok guys. Not sure this has been asked (I did a search and nothing that fit came up; also on the Title, nothing fit there, either) so here goes:
I recently got a Curve 8530 from my friend in Seattle. I registered and activated it via Virgin Mobile (since it's a VM phone). I've seen the posts on various forums about having to have a data plan, which I will get asap... however, when I try to use BB App World, it says I'm not connected to the wireless network. I understand the reasoning behind that, which is due to my not being in an area that has service through either VM or Sprint. Now, with that said, I'm having a problem with the APN List (which I'm assuming the Service Books is tied to from what I've read on that, too). My question is, how can I fix the radio function on my BB so I can download apps and things? I got that dreaded message on the App World website stating my radio was off, but my model doesn't have the TCP/IP settings. I'm wondering a: why RIM didn't allow this function to be corrected by the user and b: why this even happens. I've even had to fix the Wi-Fi on it so I can use it to use the apps, but now I can't access AW, either on my BB or via the website. Do I need to go to an area with service so I can fix this? I've already gotten two or three of the SBs in queue, so I'm hoping that the problem is corrected when I get to a service area. But it worked fine on Wi-Fi until I upgraded the OS. I'm just wondering what happened; was it due to my upgrade or what?
